How to Do Machine Lateral Raises
- Adjust the machine so that the pads are leaning against your elbows.
- Lift your arms out to your sides, until your upper arms are horizontal.
- Lower the arms again.
This is an exercise where it is easy to pick a weight that is too heavy. Rather err on the lighter side, and strive for a strict form where you focus on getting good contact with your delts.
